Point of View: The Unfinished Business of Transportation Deregulation

Although deregulation removed price and entry controls in most transportation industries, economic and other types of restrictions remained in some areas—among them aviation and surface transportation infrastructure. This article looks at possible market-based and other reforms that can advance the benefits of deregulation in the years ahead. Proposals discussed include: structural reform of the air traffic control system; marginal cost pricing of runways; airport privatization; relaxing restrictions on foreign ownership of U.S. airlines; and road pricing.
